The whole gcc-4.1.x series is discontinued and not maintained anymore.
You would be better off to use a somewhat current toolchain or at least
avoid versions that are known to be broken (like sysroot and 4.1.x).
Sysroot support is deliberately marked as unavailable for anything older
than the 4.2.x series for good reasons -- see toolchain/gcc/Config.in
